A Remotely Mounted Crash Detection System 973240

This paper describes a crash detection system developed for use in automotive passive restraint applications. The system is unique in that the small, rugged module performs all of the functions necessary to determine when airbag deployment is required. Because it is designed to be mounted near the impact zone, the system is well suited to three difficult crash discrimination situations: front impacts in body-on-frame vehicles such as light trucks, side impacts in any automobile, and crash severity discrimination for future adaptive restraint systems.
